Young Living has improved our lives in so many ways, one of the most important ways is by offering non-toxic products that enhance our health!
Young Living products have completely changed how I look at EVERYTHING!! Originally, I had no idea how many toxic chemicals were in my home, I just never thought about it! After purchasing my starter kit and falling in love with these oils, I started looking at other things in my home that could be replaced with 100% all natural, oil-infused products from Young Living.
We aren’t there yet, but we’re currently working on becoming a chemical free home. It’s a long process (for us anyway), but we’ve already replaced many products including cleaners. Instead of using multiple cleaners for every different cleaning job (dusting, floors, counters, showers, toilets…) we now use only Thieves Cleaner! It not only saves us money, but it smells fantastic and I have no worries using it around my kids! Thieves Laundry Detergent is another thing we have replaced – can’t even imagine washing our clothes in anything else now!!
We have also replaced many toiletry items. Thieves Aroma Bright toothpaste, mouthwash, lotions, shower gels, hand purifier, shampoos and conditioners. There are so many more that I can’t wait to replace as well.
If you, too, are ready for a change, Young Living is a great start!!
Daily Oil Routine
Morning: shower, Morning Start shower gel, Lavender Mint shampoo
Genesis lotion, Thieves Aroma Bright toothpaste, Thieves mouthwash (some days), Meadow Mist deodorant, Joy or Sensation on my wrists and behind ears (as perfume)
Endoflex on my neck, Progessence Plus on my forearms – both of these help with my hormone support!
Ningxia Red for all of us, Agilease and Sulfurzyme for Derek and I (for joint support), Super C for us as well. Derek also takes Powergize on his running days, and a Ningxia Nitro (for energy) on his long run days. The kids have been chewing a Super C chewable each morning and night since we got them last week.
Before school, I put Thieves mixed with coconut oil on the bottoms of my big kid’s feet to boost their immune systems while at school. I also rub a focus blend on their brainstems to help them while at school. This was a blend I made up based on things that I have read that are good with anything school related (focus, memory…), I add to it as I read and study. Currently, it has Frankincense, Rosemary, Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Clarity, Peppermint and Basil in it.
During the day: the diffuser is almost always going in our living room area. Depending on my mood for the day will make a difference of what is in it, but almost always Purification (because of dirty diapers) is in there along with whatever else I decide on. You will find either lemon or grapefruit in my glass water bottle. I may be cleaning with my Thieves Cleaner (I use it to clean EVERYTHING in my house!!), if it is laundry day, I’ll be using the Thieves Laundry Soap and of course throughout the day we will be using the Thieves foaming hand soap as needed and the Thieves waterless purifier if we are out! Most days I will be using Digize for digestive support. The taste is not my fave, so I prefer to rub on my belly or put in a veggie capsule so I don’t have to taste it.
Afternoons: I love when it is time to pick my big kids up from school, but it gets crazy! They are both telling me everything that happened during the day at.the.same.time!!! Agghhh it makes me a not nice person some days (just keepin’ it real). But, Stress Away has really helped me to relax and not let it get to me! Now, I put a little Stress Away behind my ears before I go pick them up – I’m a brand new person!! 😉
Night: I use the ART skin care products to clean my face, there is a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. To the moisturizer, I add Frankincense, Lavender and Manuka (all great for skin support). Our diffuser has lemon, lavender and peppermint each night (for seasonal support) along with anything else I think we may need.
As for the kids, they also use YL products and love them! They use the KidsScents bath wash, shampoo and toothpaste!! Kamdyn likes Copaiba on her gums each night before bed since she has been teething. Dayton loves Christmas Spirit in his diffuser each night and the girls’ room usually has Gentle Baby in it because it is calming and smells SO good!!
Over the last (almost) 3 years, I have learned SO much about the toxic chemicals that we are exposed to daily! It is so sad that we can not read a label and trust that the information is truthful. There are so many toxins in everything! I honestly had no idea I was potentially harming my family by purchasing and using certain products.
As I researched and read, I started switching out the toxic products with safe, all-natural products from Young Living. The first switch we made was replacing all of our cleaners for one product that has saved us a ton of money – Thieves Household Cleaner. This one bottle of cleaner has replaced every single cleaner in our home!! Theives Cleaner comes very concentrated, so one capful diluted with water is all that is needed for most cleaning jobs. One bottle will easily last me 4-6 months! Now when I clean, I don’t need a gas mask or have to have the kids in a different part of the house, actually, my kids help me and I don’t have to worry about the chemicals they are breathing in while helping me.
We have now switched out about 99% of the toxins in our home!! I’m so thankful for safe options that are enhancing our health instead of harming it!!
